Hertz World Headquarters Update
Posted by Benjamin Dona on Wednesday, October 9th, 2013 at 10:58am.
Hertz is up and running in North Naples. On October 3, 2013, the CEO of Hertz officially started work at the temporary headquarters of the 5th 3rd Bank Center in North Naples. The relocation of most of the corporation's employees is planned for 2015, at their new location in Estero. Hertz estimates that of the 700 jobs available will entail about 300-400 of their current employees making the move with the senior staff to Southwest Florida's Gulf Coast. That leaves room for approximately several hundred new employees already residing here.
Construction is due to start this Fall on the $70 million dollar project and will feature a green project, parking garage, fitness and child care center, and lots of green space. Hertz expects that up to 250 employees will start the move to our area in the Spring of 2014 and the rest once the new headquarters is complete.
A job fair was hosted at the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point on September 25th through the 26th that drew over 2,300 applicants. No one was hired "on the spot" but Hertz expects that about 600 of the potential applicants have the appropriate skills and fifty of those are being brought in for interviews for positions the company needs to fill immediately.
Hertz is still debating if the new call center will open in Cape Coral that is expected to create about 250 more jobs. You can visit Hertz's website for job openings at https://globaljobs-hertz.icims.com/jobs/intro
